xusro saidAm I the only one bothered by the racial discrimination with the media coverage of the recent murder of Farkhonda? When the Hebdo Massacre occurred, people throughout the world were saying "Je Suis Charlie" (including me). However, when an Afghan woman is beaten, run over, burnt, and thrown off a roof, for allegedly burning a Qur'an, the majority of people are either unaware of the incident, or don't bat an eye.
Here's a link to the murder you should have included in the OP.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murder_of_Farkhunda
26 have been arrested for her death. and quoting from the link, "On March 23, hundreds of women protested the attack, demanding that the government prosecute those responsible for Farkhunda's death. Farkhunda's death has also become a rallying point for women's rights activists in Afghanistan. On March 24, thousands of people protested against the attack in front of the Afghan Ministry of Justice in Kabul."
It sounds as if it is being handled quite well by the authorities in Pakistan.
Is that what you call acts of Islamic idiocy? It's not like there's a shortage of other incidents just as or more egregious than the one you're talking about are happening throughout nearly every country dominated by Islam, is there? You can bet that on the day she was murdered there were at least 200 or more others throughout the Islamic sphere of equal cruelty.
The attack on the staff at Charlie Hebdo was another issue altogether. It was an and organized terrorist attack on non Muslims for exercising freedom of speech and freedom of the press in a secular Western nation.
